Ashburn, VA asked in Consumer Law for Virginia

Q: I bought a bracelet in 2020 for $9,000 I was told it was pure gold. It's only gold covered. What are my rights?

I bought a bracelet in 2020 for $9,000 I was told it was pure gold. However, the gold is beginning to discolor and I've come to learn that the bracelet is in fact gold covered and not pure gold. The pawn shop I bought it from has since changed owners twice but the store has kept the same name throughout. What are my rights? They said I can buy another bracelet at a discounted price or they can dip it in gold to cover it again. However, I want money back is this possible since I was sold a "fake" bracelet?

A: A Virginia attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. The Product Liability category is basically about injuries from dangerous products. Your situation appears to be closer to consumer rights. You could repost and add categories of "Consumer Law," "Contracts," or "Civil Litigation." Good luck
